Since 2004, TAGHeuer has been the official timekeeper for the Indianapolis 500 Mile Race. The Indy 500 is known as the oldest car event and is also one of the three famous crowns (the other two are F1 and Le Mans 24 Hours). To celebrate 15 consecutive years of cooperation with this legendary event, TAGHeuer has launched two special edition 500 edition watches.
The stainless steel case back of the new watch is engraved with the 500th logo, the start date of this year and the track masonry pattern, telling an important part of the TAGHeuer brand story and its deep connection with the world of the race. With two new watches, TAGHeuer shares its sincere passion for the sport with speed and watch enthusiasts around the world.
TAGHeuer Special Edition 500
The new Carrera 500th Edition Special Edition watch demonstrates the enthusiasm of the avant-garde watch brand TAGHeuer for the thrilling motorsport. This watch is 41 mm in diameter and features a black perforated calfskin strap with red stitching and lining. The sub-dial at 6 o’clock is decorated with the 500 mark, and the ceramic bezel is engraved with red ‘INDY500’. This sports chronograph has a black dial with a white sub-dial, and the words ‘CARRERA’ and ‘CALIBRE16’ are printed on the top and bottom of the date display window at 3 o’clock, respectively, revealing the series and built-in movement of the timepiece. The relevant scales, marks and hands are decorated in red, making the timing information more legible. The watch comes in a special packaging.
TAGHeuer F1 Series Printed 500th Special Edition Watch
The new F1 Series Indy 500 Special Edition is a vibrant 43mm chronograph that is clearly linked to the long-established Indy 500 event. On the black aluminum bezel, the red ‘INDY500′ and brand emblem are distinctive and easy to understand. The ’60’ minute index is decorated with a sporty red lacquer, which is more conspicuous against the background of the black dial. The central chronograph seconds hand, the hands in the white sub-dial, and the inner ring numbers are also bright red. The 500th stamp is on the subdial at 6 o’clock.
